It explained about preamps and line inputs and phono inputs and effects sends and phantom power(!) and just about everything you'd need as a newby to get started*. I've never seen such a comprehensive and well written manual since and I've always been grateful for it. If more kit came with well-written printed manuals rather than hurriedly put-together PDFs that you have to download and a quick start guide that says only download the manual then I reckon we'd have taken an important step to saving the human race from itself.
Am with you 100% on this. When it's practical I still like to print off the important bits of manuals, I hate reading them on screen as PDF's.
Mind you, the latest Epub version of the Logic Pro X manual weighs in at 1,179 pages. That's more than a ream, even if done double sided. I wonder if they would notice at work... am not sure it would even fit in a lever arch file! :mrgreen:
